So I finally got back around to picking up Final Fantasy XII again. After a short bit of re-acclimating myself to the game, I progressed to the end of the Eruyt Village chapter, which I thought was rather neat. Fran's farewell in particular was rather touching. Also, the music in the village was simply gorgeous.
I managed to watch all of EA's conference today on G4, and I thought it was a pretty rock-solid show. Hot Pursuit looked pretty sweet, and Dead Space 2 just looked wicked. Bulletstorm took the cake for me, though--it looks like the result of a menage a trois between MadWorld, Unreal Tournament, and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (the almighty kick!). Definitely excited for that one.
In non-gaming news, I've been busy trying to get back on the schedule at my old workplace. Also been really busy apartment hunting in northwest Austin, although I've found a place that's a winner for me (just have to hope it's still available, since I've been tied up lately and unable to sign). Taking a boring summer class which is remedial math for retards, but it's the only class I"m taking so I can't really complain.
And lastly, I managed to shave another minute off my mile run on the treadmill, which brings me to a 11:29 mile. The goal is to at least get a 13:30 mile and a half as per APD standards, but I've got plenty of time (as in, probably a year and a half) to prepare before I actually apply.
That's what Novakaine's been up to. What about you?
